Weymouth College is getting help from the Education Commissioner.

David Collins and his team will be looking at how the college can improve and meet the needs of the local community.

The college is under financial pressure and back in August, 21 staff went into consultation over potential redundancies.

In March the Commissioner praised the college, which is now in the top 10% in the UK, for improvements to the curriculum and rising student numbers.

A structure and prospects appraisal will start later this month and will last until December, looking at all future options for students, employers and local stakeholders.

College Principal Liz Myles commented: "Both the management and Governors of the college are fully engaged with the Commissioner and his team and remain fully committed to building on improvements that are already under way."

College Vice-Principal Nigel Evans said: "We remain committed to placing the interests and needs of students at the heart of what we do. We are striving to reach a balance between offering a wide range of course and making sure that there are enough students on a course to make it a rich and rewarding learning experience, as well as financially viable."
